Celtic seek deal for £10million-rated Bournemouth forward Lys Mousset

Celtic
are exploring a deal for Bournemouth's former France Under 21 striker Lys Mousset.
The English Premier League
club rate the 23-year-old in the £10million bracket.
Reluctant to smash the £9m record fee paid for Odsonne Edouard last summer, the Scottish champions are prepared to offer players plus cash to secure a deal.
Bournemouth have a long-standing interest in Parkhead full-back Kieran Tierney. Facing a double hernia operation this summer, however, it's understood the Scotland international is not one of the players the Scottish champions are prepared to sacrifice to get Mousset.
A £6million signing from Le Havre in 2016, Mousset has started 19 games for the south coast club, making most of his appearances as a substitute. Linked with Fulham in the January window the striker has scored three first-team goals, his last strike coming in a 5-1 defeat by Arsenal in February.
Expected to attract significant interest, Mousset is interested in a move to the SPFL after viewing the first-team progress of countrymen Moussa Dembele and Odsonne Edouard.
Against a backdrop of uncertainty surrounding interim manager Neil Lennon and the departure of former head of recruitment Lee Congerton for Leicester City, the Parkhead club face a major squad rebuild this summer.
Loan attacker Timothy Weah has already gone, with Oli Burke poised to return to West Bromwich Albion after the Scottish Cup Final. Jeremy Toljan, Dedryck Boyata, Filip Benkovic, Cristian Gamboa, Scott Allan, Marvin Compper and Craig Gordon could also go.
